Porsches in Shenandoah Valley The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education (DE) events at the Virginia International Raceway and other tracks. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several other social meetings annually.

Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

Porsches & Pastrami:

Back by popular demand! Please join fellow members at Dürty Nelly's Pub and Wayside Deli in Charlottesville (map) at 11:30 AM on Sunday, July 22. Thanks to member/owner Gary Hagar, we can look forward to the usual excellent selection of lunch and beverage options, while catching up with other SRPCA'rs. Something hearty on the menu to fit all tastes! Porsches & Pastrami has been a hallmark Club activity, noted for great food and company, and weather permitting, followed by a short-ish destination drive. After lunch and conversation, we will meet for our Driver's Meeting a 1:00 PM and start our tour shortly thereafter. Our drive will conclude at the Grace Estate Winery, where you may enjoy a tasting of a variety of their excellent wines, splitting a bottle with friends, or simply lingering over a glass of your favorite.

Hope to see you there!

We'll meet at the Glenmore Country Club, 1750 Piper Way, Keswick, VA (map) between 11:00 and 11:30 AM, hold our drivers' meeting at 11:45 AM, and hit the road at high noon. Our route will start with stints on the Thomas Jefferson Parkway, the James Monroe Parkway and Carter's Mountain Road, followed by a long drive on Virginia's historic Plank Road. All together, the drive is 50 miles of gorgeous country backroads and will take a little over an hour.

Also, Music in the Blue Ridge will begin at 4:30 pm, for those who would like to make a day of it. I look forward to seeing you on August 4th.
